So excited to have you all with me this week! I’ve got some really fun projects that I made using my Cricut Explore machine that you can follow along and make too! This month for the Cricut Design Star Contest the theme was “Celebrations” and our team chose to have the theme “On the Table and Dreaming”. What is that, you ask? Well, we wanted to explore different ideas that you can put on your table throughout the year…from baby showers to holidays and everything in between.

So today was my absolute favorite project.

Today I want to share a wreath I made that can be used for SO many things. I LOVE wreaths on doors, on walls, as part of a gallery wall, etc. BUT what about as part of your centerpiece for Thanksgiving?!

I used a simple white turkey and placed it in the middle and just love the effect is has on my table.

Isn’t it gorgeous and understated, but super festive?!

I love seeing all of these fun colors together both on my wall (see print HERE) and on my table. It screams fall, but with a few colors you wouldn’t normally use!

I just love this idea and wanted to share how to make those sweet flowers/leaves so you can make your own in whatever colors/patterns and combinations you want!

 

 

Let’s make this wreath!

SUPPLIES:

*wreath form (you can make this any size you want)

*cardstock in any color/pattern you LOVE

*hot glue

*Cricut Explore (this will make it SUPER easy)

THE FLOWERS:

Foldover Flower: After cutting out the pattern, simply fold over the design and glue the sides together. Start rolling the flower, tacking the beginning down with glue. Roll until you are at the end and put a dab of glue to seal it. Then simply fluff out the petals with your finger.

Petal Flower: For each small flower you will need 6 small petals and 4 large petals. You can make these as big as you’d like by adding more petals. Once cut, fold the base of the flower in from one corner and then fold in from the other corner to make a point in the back. (see pic) Before gluing, put your finger in the point and smush the point in the back. Now use a felt ball (or anything you have on hand) to glue into one of the small petals. Add 2 more small petals around the ball. Add another row of small petals behind the first. Lastly, glue the large petals around the back. I then went in and folded and shaped the tops of the leaves until I liked how they looked!

Long Petal Flower: Take cut out design and roll, tacking down the beginning with a bit of glue. Roll until you are done and use a dab of glue to seal. I did 3 layers for the large flowers and 2 for the small. then simple start at the base and pull each individual petal down shaping the petal up a little at the end.

To Put Together the Wreath: Take a foam wreath and wrap it with fabric. I knew I wanted mine to show a bit so I picked one that coordinated. If you don’t want yours showing, use any fabric you want. After wrapping the wreath, begin hot gluing those flowers on. Once you have it where you like it, cut out and add the leaves in. This really brings out those flowers and can hide any spots you make need to! Now you have made a wreath ready for any season (just change the colors you use!)

Use it on your door (to welcome your fall guests)

or use it on your table to bring punches of color and happy to your thanksgiving (or any other occasion) table!

I hope you have enjoyed these projects to make your Thanksgiving table one of the funnest around! And the best part…It is all made with paper so it is cheap and comes in SO many colors!

So excited to have you all with me this week! I’ve got some really fun projects that I made using my Cricut Explore machine that you can follow along and make too! This month for the Cricut Design Star Contest the theme was “Celebrations” and our team chose to have the theme “On the Table and Dreaming”. What is that, you ask? Well, we wanted to explore different ideas that you can put on your table throughout the year…from baby showers to holidays and everything in between.

So for today, I want to show you a fun and quick project I made. For big celebrations, like Thanksgiving, I love to make my table pretty (well, at least when I cook for a crowd!).

One of my favorite projects this time is the Pinecone Place Card. It is a perfect way to bring Fall in, in a classy and inexpensive way! It is a perfect way to personalize your celebration and could even see this at a wedding.

SUPPLIES

1 piece of 12×12 paper (for the pinecone)

small pieces of paper for the name sign

6″ wire

wire cutters

hot glue

INSTRUCTIONS

1-Take designs and put it into Cricut Design Studio. Cut both of them out.

2-Take design and start to roll one line of scallops. Glue a dot of hot glue right at the beginning and every few turns as you keep rolling it up. Roll 3-4 scallops and dot a dab of glue at the end to end it. (see pic far left)

3-(see middle picture) place finger in the bottom and push up middle of pinecone while pulling on the top.

4- Keep working with the petals, pulling and shaping until you get the look of the pinecone you want. I used some dabs of glue to hold it in place until it was solid.

5- Now take the wire and shape into the name holder. (see pic for directions)

6- Glue wire in the middle of the pinecone and have the bigger loop toward the back of the pinecone.

7-Glue small piece of contrasting cardstock on the back of the name card. Place name card in wire and you are done!

You can also make those pinecones and use them as decor as well.

I love this…I hope you do too!

Thanksgiving Table Decor: Blessed and Thankful Silverware Holders

So excited to have you all with me this week! I’ve got some really fun projects that I made using my Cricut Explore machine that you can follow along and make too! This month for the Cricut Design Star Contest the theme was “Celebrations” and our team chose to have the theme “On the Table and Dreaming”. What is that, you ask? Well, we wanted to explore different ideas that you can put on your table throughout the year…from baby showers to holidays and everything in between.

I chose to do a Thanksgiving table and I’m really excited about how it all came together! I have  a few different ideas for you, so I hope you’ll come back each day to see them!

Isn’t that so fun and cheerful?!

First off, we are going to talk about the Blessed and Thankful Silverware Holders.

They are SUPER easy to make and require the following:

Cricut Explore

Blessed and Thankful Design File

Paper in 2 colors & glue!

That’s it!

To use, I opened up the files I designed  in Cricut Design Space.

Get it sized to where you want it and cut it out.

After taking off the outside (with the words), proceed to cut the insert.

Finish by folding the outside and gluing the insert on to the back of the the front. Glue the two sides together and you are done!

The file comes with both the Thankful version:

and the Blessed version:

Aren’t those SO fun?!

Put your silverware into the holders and place on top of a napkin on the plate. By being able to use any color, you can really personalize these to fit into your own decor and settings.

I LOVE the thought of decorating my table and adding reminders (Blessed and Thankful) to remember just how I am feeling on that day. Of course you could use these for other things too, think “Thank you” dinners or celebrations such as Baptisms, Anniversaries, etc.

To make this project SUPER easy, use your Cricut Explore machine..it is SO easy to use and make your favorite projects in just minutes!
